Spanish website Don Balon claim the Madrid president is desperate to sell the winger before his contract runs out.
Ronaldo put pen to paper on a five-year contract extension worth £365,000-a-week last year.

The winger has struck 18 goals from 22 games this season – a stunning achievement – but Perez wants to sell him to China, where he can recoup close to the £80million they paid United to sign him in 2009.
